Climate Change Arts Exchange

Join Baba Brinkman, rap artist and science communicator, as he hosts an afternoon of multimedia performances addressing climate change, culminating with Interpreting Nature, a conversation between NYBG’s first composer-in-residence, Angélica Negrón, and Pulitzer Prize-nominated author and scientist, David Haskell.

Interpreting Nature: Connecting Science with Our Senses

As world forests face ever-increasing threats from human activity and climate change, scientists and artists alike work to inform a wider audience. David Haskell and NYBG composer-in-residence Angélica Negrón explore the deep connections between people and nature, featuring highlights of Haskell’s forest-recorded “tree songs” and sample soundscapes from Negron’s “Chorus of the Forest”—premiering at NYBG November 2.
